Australian Poetry Slam is one of the largest and most respected performing writers programs in the world; combining stories, poems, theatre and hip-hop.
At the APS Final 2017, you chose Solli Raphael and Jesse Oliver as your National Poetry Slam Champions.
Who will this nationwide search unearth in 2018? What stories will explode in your mind, cause you to run onto stage, pump your fist and shout "Hell yeah! Me too!"
